Im no expert but I dont think a e36 318 has that much weight difference between say a e36 328 or m3.
Again, Im no expert but it seems that performance parts are way easier to come by for a 328 or m3 vs a 318.
Sleepers definetly are appealing, but handsdown more work/money/time is required. Whats all that worth to you?
As to your comment "slow cars are usually lighter", this makes no sence. A Toyota Echo is slower and lighter than a corolla, does this mean your going to mod the Echo because its lighter?
I think the smart thing to do is choose a vehicle that shows the most potential that suits your likes and budget.
Lets be serious here. With 10psi on a stock internal e36 318, how fast do you really expect it to go? Id be shocked if it could hang with a 328 without blowing up.
To each there own.
